She studied Montessori pedagogy for children from birth to three years in Denver with Judi Orion, M.A. (2010-2011), for children aged three to six in Munich with Maria Roth (2007-2008) and for children aged six to twelve with Kay Baker, PhD. in Prague (2014-2016). All under the auspices of the International Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), founded by Dr. Maria Montessori in 1929 to ensure the highest quality education of future Montessori teachers. In 2015 she interpreted and completed a Montessori school management course with Peter Davidson (USA), in 2017 she participated in the International Montessori Congress in Prague and in 2019 the International Meeting of Leaders and Owners of Montessori Schools called Lead Montessori. She has a certificate of completion of six degrees in Kinesiology One Brain with Martina Beránková, a course in Nonviolent Communication with Moumina Jeffs (England) and has undergone a three-year training in spiritual healing by Nicholas Demetry, M.D. (Etherikos International Center for Spiritual Healing and Development). She has been working in the Montessori Kampus for thirteen years. She and her husband are raising two daughters.
She got into Montessori in 2005, when she took part in the first Montessori courses with MVDr. Eva Štarková on the topic of Everyday Life Activities and the Development of the Senses for 3-6 years old children. She then went to the United States as an au pair, where she cared for two children who attended a Montessori kindergarten. The attitude of their parents and the enthusiasm of the children completely convinced her of Montessori as the most supportive way of educating and raising children.
In 2007-2008 she completed international Montessori training for children from 3 to 6 years old in Munich and in 2009 she founded the Montessori Kampus, then in the form of a small class for five children and their parents. The Kampus has gradually grown to its current form with a capacity of 30 schoolchildren, 25 preschool children, 12 children under the age of three, 14 toddlers with parents and many other opportunities to meet people of all ages.
Its goal is to create, together with a team of co-workers, children and their parents, a safe and stimulating environment in which everyone can develop their potential.
